Jill Stein formally launches 2024 White House bid as Green party candidate

Jill Stein

A new front opened in the growing threats to Joe Biden’s presidency on Tuesday when the leftwing environmentalist Jill Stein formally launched her third presidential bid in an online conversation with two fellow progressive activists.

Stein, 73, who is bidding to become the US Green party’s nominee, is the latest in a series of mostly leftist figures to announce candidacies with the potential to erode Biden’s core support in an expected re-match against Donald Trump in next year’s poll.

Having previously announced her candidacy with a video posted on X, formerly Twitter, she gave added substance to her campaign in a live Zoom conversation with Chris Smalls, a US trade union organiser for Amazon workers, and Miko Peled, an Israeli-born pro-Palestinian activist.


Prominent conservative lawyers band together to fight Trump threat

 Conservative lawyer against Trump

Three prominent US legal thinkers have announced a new organisation to champion conservative legal theory within the rule of law, to fight the threat of a second Donald Trump term.

“Our country comes first,” the three wrote in the New York Times, “and our country is in a constitutional emergency, if not a constitutional crisis. We all must act accordingly, especially us lawyers.”

The authors were George Conway, an attorney formerly married to Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s White House counselor; J Michael Luttig, a retired judge and adviser to Trump’s vice-president, Mike Pence, who became a prominent January 6 witness; and Barbara Comstock, a former Republican congresswoman from Virginia.


Conservative Pundit Trashes Donald Trump's 'Excellent' Doctor's Note With Just 1 Word

S.E.CuppDonald Trump on Monday released a letter from his personal physician which claimed the former president’s “overall health is excellent” and his “cognitive exams were exceptional.”

But conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp summed up the letter with one word: “Propaganda.”

It was “no coincidence,” said Cupp in a clip shared by Mediaite, that Trump had published the letter to his Truth Social platform on the 81st birthday of President Joe Biden, whose age has become a talking point among Republicans and Democrats.

But as the commentator noted, Trump “released no medical records, OK?”

“That was propaganda. He released propaganda. Right? We have seen no lab results,” Cupp continued. “We’ve seen nothing other than whatever he told this doctor to say. I also heard that [North Korean dictator] Kim Jong Un hit 11 holes in one. He says that so we should believe it right?”

A Colorado court makes it official: Trump is an insurrectionist

Colorodo court: Trump is an insurrectionist

Sometimes it is possible to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in the world of law and politics. Friday’s Colorado court decision refusing to apply the 14th Amendment to disqualify former President Donald Trump from appearing on the Republican presidential primary ballot in Colorado is just such a moment.

For people who believe that Trump should be disqualified, the judge’s holding is a disappointing defeat. But there is a powerful silver lining in this cloud for those who understand that facts and truth are essential to the survival of democracy, freedom and the rule of law.


Trump Demands That The RNC Stop Hosting Debates For His Rivals Or Be Revamped: NOW!!!

RNCCoup-attempting former President Donald Trump on Monday demanded that his party stop hosting debates for his Republican presidential rivals or be “revamped.”

Trump has not attended any of the three debates the Republican National Committee has sponsored since late August and does not intend to attend the fourth one next month.

Yet, as actual voting in primaries and caucuses draws nearer and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has risen steadily in the polls, both he and his campaign have become increasingly vocal about ending the debates entirely.

“RNC must save money on lowest ever ratings debates. Use it against the Democrats to STOP THE STEAL! If not, REVAMP THE RNC, NOW!!!” Trump wrote on his social media website Monday afternoon.


US appeals court ruling strikes at core of landmark voting rights law

US Appeals court guts voting rights lawA federal appeals court on Monday ruled that only the U.S. government, not private parties, can sue under a landmark civil rights law barring racial discrimination in voting, a decision that would significantly hamper usage of the Voting Rights Act to challenge ballot access, voting rules and redistricting.

The ruling, which will likely be appealed, could set up the next voting rights battle at the U.S. Supreme Court.

The vast majority of Voting Rights Act cases are filed by private parties. For instance, the case that prompted the Supreme Court earlier this year to strike down Alabama's congressional map was originally filed by a coalition of civil rights groups.



Protestors calling for cease-fire shut down California Democratic Party convention

Protesters calling for cease-fire

Demonstrators who are seeking a cease-fire solution in the Israel-Hamas war shut down a convention held by the California Democratic Party (CDP) in Sacramento, Calif.

The Los Angeles Times reported that protestors barged through a security detail at the event Saturday evening, resulting in delegates and other participants in the convention to be temporarily boxed out from entering and exiting the building.

Protestors were carrying signs of “Free Palestine” as they chanted “cease-fire now. Cease-fire now,” while marching through the convention hall.
